Very refeshing ale. Great hop flavor. A little bit too bitter for my taste, but overall this is a very nice, drinkable beer.

Nice, hoppy flavor with a dry finish. This is a very nice Pale Ale! Could easily drink one too many of this very drinkable beer.

A pleasant, hoppy pale ale that doesn't really smell like much. It has a strong bitter finish that gives an extra kick to the hops. Medium body, medium carbonation. Nice lush head on a pale amber body. Very dry - no sweetness whatsoever. Hints of grapefruit.

Nicely biased towards the hoppy side with right amount of maltiness to back it up. I'll have to keep a six of this in my fridge.

Many breweries would try to pass this off as an IPA - it sure is as hoppy as some "IPAs" anyway - this is really a perfectly balanced pale ale - the malt/hop balance is the best you'll find in the style - and the slighty bready presence really tops it off and creates a fuller flavor - slight woody finish that's nice and clean - an excellent pale ale.

A slightly cloudy orange hue, rocky head with some lacing. thin-bodied. Aroma has hints of clove, grapefruit, and burnt toast. Hoppy on the palate but not overaggressive. Finished clean with little aftertaste, a quality APA which are so hard to find.

wonderful citrus aroma hits as soon as you pour, then you see lots of cascading hops. Smooth flavor, nice balance of bitterness. Nice clean taste from beginning to end.

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2005 Aroma of caramel-covered toasted pine needles. Sticky foam clung to the glass like a child in a roomful of strangers. Wish it wasn’t filtered. Soft bready notes on a tasty citrus hopcone. Leafy finish. Very tasty.
